Conférence : Patricia Rubin, « Perverse Images: Monstrous Beauty and Monkey Business in Italian Art from Botticelli to Bronzino », en ligne, 27 mai 2021

In canto 29 of Dante’s Inferno a notorious alchemist, consigned to the depths of Hell among the fraudulent, boasts of having been a successful ape of nature (“di natura buona scimia”). The boast allies imitation with counterfeiting and points to the way that representational truth to nature is inherently false. This talk takes the presence of monkeys in Sandro Botticelli’s tondo showing the Adoration of the Magi (The National Gallery, London), Michelangelo’s sculpture of a languishing prisoner (Louvre), and...

Conférence : « Dante 1481. The Comedia, illustrated by Botticelli », en ligne, 4 mai 2021

The 1481 edition of Dante’s La Comedia was printed in Florence by Nicolaus Laurentii, Alamanus. Produced in the first decades of new printing technology in Europe, this was also the first edition to emerge from the city of Dante’s birth. With engravings attributed to Baccio Baldini from designs by Sandro Botticelli, this ambitious book could potentially have been the first fully illustrated edition of the poem. Yet no more than the first 19 cantos have...

Parution : Marieke J.E. van den Doel, Ficino and Fantasy, Leyde, Brill, 2021

Did the Florentine philosopher Marsilio Ficino (1433-99) influence the art of his time? Art historians have been fiercely debating this question for decades. This book starts with Ficino’s views on the imagination as a faculty of the soul, and shows how these ideas were part of a long philosophical tradition and inspired fresh insights. This approach, combined with little known historical material, offers a new understanding of whether, how and why Ficino’s Platonic conceptions of...

Parution : Carla d’Arista, The Pucci of Florence: Patronage and Politics in Renaissance Italy, Turnhout, Brepols, 2020

The story of the Pucci family, great patrons of Renaissance art and architecture. Shrewd and ruthless, the Pucci were Medici loyalists whose political and cultural alignment with the most powerful family in Renaissance Florence was rewarded with wealth and influence. The Pucci’s martial support for the Medici in the dangerous business of ruling Tuscany drove their transformation from a clan of minor guildsmen to a noble dynasty with three cardinals to its name. Over the next...

Parution : Valentina Hristova, « Le Sacrifice du Christ Peinture, société et politique en Italie centrale, entre Renaissance et Réforme », Milan, Officina Libraria, 2020

Tra la fine del XV secolo e la metà del XVI secolo Firenze e Roma vedono fiorire una moltitudine di pitture sul tema del Cristo morto. Da Botticelli a Vasari, passando per i capolavori di Raffaello e Pontormo, queste magnifiche scene di compianto rimangono incomprese. Dove erano state viste? Chi erano stati i promotori? Più in generale, in che modo la rinascita di questi temi nell’Italia centrale può rivelarsi utile per chiarire un momento importante...
